Stephen Hawking, 1942-2018

Rest in peace to a legend not only to the physicist community, but the AAC and ALS communities.

As a long-time Pink Floyd fan, I have always loved and appreciated the power of 1994’s Keep Talking, which included portions of this video:

In it, Stephen Hawking reminds us of the power of communication:

Mankind’s greatest achievements have come about by talking
And its greatest failures… by not talking
It doesn’t have to be like this

What a legacy, and may we heed this wisdom now more than ever.
